Mist Gallery presents – Shirley Peters – New Works Exhibition 

Meet the artist at 2pm Saturday 15th July

I live and work on Dharug Country, at Mulgoa, in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. The local environment is Hawkesbury sandstone, with ancient trees and grasses that survive drought and floods. 

These painting are views of the rocks and streams behind my studio. They embrace the colours, the atmosphere and the rush of cool waters after rain. I have also painted scenes from the Blue Mountains.

I am pivoting to ‘impressionism’ with this series, as my goal is semi-abstraction.  Most of the works have been painted with a palette knife, alla prima.

Bio:

Having studied fine art at the National Art School and Randwick Tafe, Shirley Peters embarked on a career of graphic design, book illustration, photography and painting. Early figurative and interior works have given way to landscapes, both en plein air and from her studio. She lives on five acres near the bush, with an outbuilding for her studio. An annual Artist Trail sees many visitors, and her YouTube ‘Learn to Paint” series has more than 9,000 followers.

Shirley Peters has won awards and prizes in art shows, shown in group and solo exhibitions, and is collected world wide.
